Watkins Glen

 The world as seen from Just Above Sunset -

"Notes on how things seem from out here in Hollywood..."

As noted last week, Just Above Sunset sent photographer Bill Hitzel on assignment, in a manner of speaking.  He just returned from the Zippo US Vintage Grand Prix at Watkins Glen International - September 8-10 in Watkins Glen, New York.  Yes, that would be the Zippo lighter people.  We were able to obtain a press pass for him - full access to the pits and everything.

Last week there were four initial shots he sent via email - a 1972 McLaren, owner-driver Mike Dunkel - a Lotus Formula 1 at speed - and some older machines on the streets, followed by notes on the history of the Glen.

This week the postal service managed to get Bill's CD to Hollywood, with its ninety-two high-resolution shots. The best are here, modified for web posting. The high-resolution originals are on file, should wish to ask Bill for a copy of those.

The comments are minimal here. The photographs speak for themselves.  For those of us who are car nuts, this is heaven.
